Community Calendar Announcement

September 16, 1999

Dear Editor/Publisher:

If your publication, radio or television station offers a calendar of community events, you may want to include news of the following workshops.

The Three Mountain Power Project is a 500-megawatt (MW), natural-gas-fired, combined-cycle power plant proposed by Three Mountain Power, LLC (Ogden Pacific Power), to be constructed one mile northwest of Burney in Shasta County.

Energy Commission staff will conduct two public workshops on the proposed project as follows:

Tuesday, September 21, 1999
6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
Wednesday, September 22, 1999
9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Both workshops will be held at:

Lions Hall
37006 Main Street
Burney, California
Wheelchair Accessible

The project would be comprised of two gas-fired turbine generators, one or more steam turbines and support equipment. If approved for construction and operation, the power plant would be built adjacent to an existing 10-megawatt waste wood-fueled power plant.

At the September 21st workshop, Commission staff will describe the analyses it intends to conduct for the project for key topic areas. These include air quality, public health, soil and water resources, noise, and visual resources.

On September 22nd, workshop discussion topics will include biological resources, cultural resources, land use, noise, traffic and transportation, transmission system engineering, visual resources, waste management, worker safety, and air quality.

Members of the public will have the opportunity to comment and ask questions during the workshops. Persons requiring information on how to participate in the Energy Commission's review of the project should contact Roberta Mendonca, the Energy Commission's Public Adviser, at (916) 654-4489, toll free at (800) 822-6228, or by e-mail at
